The Lift-Off Global Network exists with the aim of launching filmmakers careers. Our Cinematographer's Showcase is an event held at Pinewood Studios, which aims to celebrate and nurture those applying their cinematography abilities to create bold and innovative films. It incorporates screenings, discussions, feedback and guidance to support cinematographers and filmmakers venturing into the exciting world of independent film.

Following on from the massive success of our First-Time Filmmaker Showcase, with one of our premier team's winning an Academy Award, we have designed this new showcase programme intended for cinematographers - with the overall goal for all who are selected to have a head start within the film industry.

You will be joined by other skilled cinematographers carving their path in the film industry!

There will be opportunities throughout the day to have your questions answered as well as enabling any filmmakers who attend the event to forge long lasting relationships which will be essential in the future! Filmmakers will also have the opportunity to have a one-on-one meet and greet with the Lift-Off Co-founders James Bradley and Ben Pohlman.

All filmmakers who are selected for The Cinematographer's Showcase will have their film screened at the home of Lift-Off’s Annual Season Awards!

The winner will screen at a Lift-Off international city-based festival of their choice.

On top of this, is the huge potential of being invited to be part of one of the many upcoming Lift-Off productions planned for 2019 and beyond. With the instant usage of our production equipment valued over $75,000.

All films must have a runtime of 45 minutes or less.

Digital online submission screeners via FilmFreeway only.

Invitations will only be offered to filmmakers (and their production teams) who have been selected by the in-house judges during the submissions process.
Proudly, we have no other restrictions for your work. This includes your works premier status, it's age and/or whether your work has been made available online.

Overall Rating
  • Had a great day at Lift-Off Cinematographer's Showcase at Pinewood Studios. The day was well organised and great to screen our films and have the chance to discuss our projects with the other filmmakers. Also really like the idea that if your project is selected to have the ability to gain access to major markets through the professional membership.

  • Overall Las Vegas Lift-Off is an excellent film festival. I've been screened there 3 times now, and am excited to be back in a couple weeks with my most recent Official Selection. I'd like to see more space and time set aside for networking and/or getting to hang out and mingle with other filmmakers, but other than that, the quality of the films and the way the fest is run is all top notch.
